My character Keita Aran in her wedding dress. It was an excuse for me to draw something pretty.

The headgear is a homage to the Norse Valkyre.

The writing on her costume is elder Futhark, 24 runes, semi-randomly placed to represent a balance of forces.

This was sketched and inked in a single day when I was depressed. It took over a month to pull together into a finished image. I'm overall satisfied with the results and I like the composition of it all. The message is about suicide and not giving up, that people love us (sometimes even from a distance, even if we've never met them) if we open our hearts to accept their love. So yeah... group hug or something.

Beller Endrus is another Calderan. He has the whole "multiple lives in his head has a talking crystal" thing going on. He is a fire elemental. He wears warm colors because he likes them.

His background is very similar to Keita but not quite as tragic.

He is sort of.. reflecting. The original idea for this image came from a scene where he is crouched on a rooftop in the rain thinking about an event that happened and what will happen next.

Ever stopped to think about the challanges life plans to throw at you in the future?

One of my roleplay characters, angsting. There is some degree of symbolism but you need to know about the character. Maybe I'll post some info on her soon. Her stuffed "Maran" is her most prized posession being followed in second by her crystal. Angsty angsty. Her hands are too small. Meh.

Too much time on my hands... The wings suxor but I was frustrated with RL. Butterflies are fun. I was shooting for a realistically marked Caracal. Tufty tufty.

Calae is a sorceress of the "Talented" mage class. She also has studied holy magic. For whatever reason, I thought of this image being put on a CCG card called "Protection Talentess". I want her hair.

This is Esryl, the devious head of the talented in Lanacele. She is the boss and she knows it. She has a domineering nature not only over those she commands but others she meets as well.

I like the way her hugeass strand of hair obscuring her face came out. Her fur was easier than I thought it would be.

I've decided I want a calico cat. They're all covered in blotches of doom. And besides, they're supposed to be good luck. That is the species of your average manekineko.

This is Miss Keita Aran holding a plush puppet of the love of her life. The mood/idea behind the image is supposed to be a'la a photography studio type image.

My half Tiger half Snow Leopard character Zandrae sharing an obscene gesture.

It suits his character perfectly and he has a goofy grin.

I did this last year. This was the first time I textured the fur on any piece of artwork. I like the motion shown by the ribbons.

Vorthorn is my jovial archmage character. This is my first concept image of him. It is rather old... before I started texturing fur and before I learned how to make backgrounds that don't suck so much..

This is one of my many characters, Nesyn. He is a blind Snow Leopard kit. I wanted to see if I could realy make him look blind and young. He is supposed to be four or five years old.

Meh... This image is actually a frame of a manga-ish attempt I'm doing. Rather than draw the images on a page and scan the page, I'm drawing each frame individually (and randomly on either side of my manga paper) and putting them together via computer.

For you lighting fans out there, you'll note that it has a slight degree of heavy shadowing, the key light on the subject is somewhat harsh (think ERS) rather than a wash, though there is also a fill light (Fresnel) wash which isn't as bright. Both the key and fill lighting has a "warm" tint to it like one might imagine being cast by a fireplace or a candle.

The background is black, I don't quite know why yet (it may be because I'm lazy or it may be that I somehow think that black adds to the creep level of the image)...

This was my first serious attempt at an Oekaki. Done with a mouse. I have since redesigned the character's costue ever so slight.
